New Drug Combination: Breast Cancer Resistance to Herceptin

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[14/03/2011] Breast cancer tumours take numerous paths to resist the targeted drug Herceptin, but a single roadblock at a crucial crossroads may restore a tumour’s vulnerability to treatment, scientists at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center report.New Drug Combination: Breast Cancer Resistance to Herceptin - Read more

Gene Fuelled Transporter: Causing Breast Cancer Cells to Self-destruct

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[28/02/2011] Scientists have shown that they can deliver a gene directly into breast cancer cells causing them to self-destruct, using an innovative, miniscule gene transport system. Gene Fuelled Transporter: Causing Breast Cancer Cells to Self-destruct - Read more

Breast Cancer: Oestrogen Reduces Aggression

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[16/02/2011] A team of researchers has revealed that oestrogen can reduce the risk of breast cancer. Their work shows that oestrogen is capable of reducing the number of breast cancer stem cells, which may explain the lower aggression of the tumour and, as a consequence, the possibility of a better prognosis.

[02/02/2011] A hip fracture is not common in a 54-year-old woman, unless she is a 54-year-old breast cancer survivor, according to a new study. Breast Cancer Therapy: Contribution to Hip Fractures? - Read more

Mechanism Revealed: Protein Related to Aging Holds Breast Cancer Clues

[28/01/2011] The most common type of breast cancer in older women — estrogen and progesterone receptor (ER/PR) positive breast cancer — has been linked to a protein that fends off aging-related cellular damage.Mechanism Revealed: Protein Related to Aging Holds Breast Cancer Clues - Read more

Under Control: Reactivating Cancer Suppressor Genes

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[19/01/2011] Scientists have brought cancer cells back under normal control — by reactivating their cancer suppressor genes. The discovery could form a powerful new technology platform for the treatment of cancer of the breast and other cancers. Under Control: Reactivating Cancer Suppressor Genes - Read more

Research: Early Detection of Breast Cancer

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[11/01/2011] Using a new, powerful method for rapidly screening molecules associated with disease, proteomics expert Joshua LaBaer and colleagues from ASU's Biodesign Institute have identified a broad panel of 28 early predictors, or biomarkers, that may one day aid in the early diagnosis of breast cancer.

Discovery: Biomarker Panel for Early Detection of Breast Cancer

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[17/12/2010] In the war on cancer, perhaps there is nothing more powerful in a physician's arsenal than early detection. Despite recent advances in early detection and treatment, breast cancer remains a common and significant health problem in the United States and worldwide.

Breast Inflammation: Key to Cancer Growth

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[16/12/2010] It took 12 years and a creation of a highly sophisticated transgenic mouse, but researchers at Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson have finally proven a long suspected theory: Inflammation in the breast is key to the development and progression of breast cancer.Breast Inflammation: Key to Cancer Growth - Read more

Breast Cancer: Scientists Discover Potential Strategy to Improve Vaccines

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[15/12/2010] The promise of vaccines targeted against various types of cancer has raised the hopes of patients and their families. The reality, however, is that these promising treatments are difficult to develop. Breast Cancer: Scientists Discover Potential Strategy to Improve Vaccines - Read more
